Buddhist Tara

Spent the early part of my Saturday doing this. It's a Buddhist Tara, Female Bodhisattva. I don't think this is any particular Tara, I simply googled images of "Buddhist Taras" and found this. I printed it, drew two 7" x 7" grid with fourteen 1" x 1" squares over the original print and one in my sketch book, then proceeded to draw this one 1" x 1" square at a time. By the end of the drawing I felt I pretty much abandoned the squares and began freehanding it. In hindsight, I believe doing this piece really helped improve my ability to draw. It's not perfect, but I enjoyed doing it and felt I made some positive progress.
Much Love,
